I'm thinkig of going into L a THIS MORNING TO SEE THE 747 / ENDEAVOR fly over .. Here's what I think it will look like
I almost forgot about the BBQ/funfly. My sons birthday is Saturday. I'll have to see.

I went to Blackbird Airpark (next to plant 42 in Palmdale) to see the shuttle this morning. The low pass down the runway at about (200 FT) was great. it looked like it was landing!
I have video to process, and post later.

F-18 flew great today and its very fast and flys like a dart even with its low weight.
flight time with the 460mah 3s lipo was 6 min pretty good at 65-100% throttle the whole time, any lower it wasnt very responsive.
It doesnt float like the F-35 did but it was faster and had unlimited vertical.

Thanks Hawk..
Thats why I like going to that Apollo Xl field so much. Even tho it's a 50 mi drive each way it's always a day filled with cool stuff.

Got a short video of the 50mm A-10. A little bit of a cross wind, but manageable. It's set up for 4s but no available 4s lipo yet, the flight was done on 3s.

Jpower A-10 50mm EDF (3 min 2 sec)

hobbyking/ jpower 50mm edf F16
where exactly the CG should be for hobbyking/ jpower 50mm edf F16.

As per instruction manual, it should be 60mm from leading edge. But when I go to field, it is not flying well. The plane seems over-sensitive to control, unstable, keep head up all the time and under power.

The other guy tell me to make it about 45mm. What is the exact CG should be.

I'm especially interested in the Katana performance. Have not set mine up yet. Waiting on motor and fan. If you have a vid, great !
